Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer recently shared a picture of her 10-year-old daughter Aleeah Simms wearing her all-star cheerleading uniform. And a slew of people were not at all shy about sharing their opinions about the girl’s outfit.
The picture showed Aleeah standing next to her competition cheer coach. And some commenters found the uniform the 10-year-old was wearing offensive.

“Yikes, mama. You’re gonna have a repeat of the past,” one person wrote. “Make sure to teach her morals and not just how to apply fake lashes. Such potential, but teetering on the side of err.”
“This is ridiculous…her face looks harder than concrete with all that makeup and fake tan. What is going on in America? This is why they have so [many] problems with their kids,” another wrote.
Leah Messer Ignores Negative Comments About Her Daughter’s Cheerleading Uniform
“Is it just me or is her skirt way too short?” said yet another person. Fortunately, Leah didn’t receive only negative commentary after posting the picture.
Many of her fans defended her daughter’s outfit, noting that the design is pretty standard for cheerleading. One fan wrote:
“Yikes! You can’t even post a picture of your BEAUTIFUL daughter without being criticized or ridiculed. I can’t believe what people are insinuating because of her cheer uniform and makeup requirements for the team…It looks like she’s having a great time! You’re awesome for providing a team outlet for her!”
Leah has not taken the opportunity to respond to any of the negative comments but later shared a photo of the full cheerleading squad at the competition. It’s worth noting that all of the girls are wearing the same uniform, as well as the same general hairstyle and makeup.
The 27-year-old mother of three had her twins, Aleeah and Aliannah, at the of age 16 and as a result, appeared on 16 and Pregnant and later Teen Mom 2. She later gave birth to her daughter, Adalynn, who is now 7.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
